this the civil rights issue of our time, but many also express uncertainty that the high court isn't evolved enough to rule on. what's your take? >> well, i think that we certainly have seen a change in the tide from the president saying that his position has evolved on this to certainly the polls. the polls have indicated clearly that the american people have changed greatly in their posturing towards not just civil unions but the right to marry. so marriage equality is front and center. not only for millennials, but people of all age groups and all walks of life. you have democrats and republicans even agreeing on this issue. at this point, people are finding a common thread. that's the right for human beings, american people that look like you and i and eothers. >> matt, there are a variety of possible outcomes. let's start with doma. if that is struck down by the high court, thewill that be thed of conservatives' attempts of outlawing gay marriage? >> it is the mother of all federal laws to try to outlaw. it will be over it it's overturned. if social conservatives try to get smart about

oversight activities. these why you have this civil contempt action in federal court right now. that's on going. you also have the chief of staff -- bill: give me a sense of what is in the documents that would tell you or us what happened? >> well, what we have to find out is exact why the department of justice in february issued a letter saying there was no gun walking at all, whatsoever, no such activity took place, and eight months later they revoked that letter and said, we made a mistake that is not true. bill, if you were called to testify before a senate panel or i was and we submitted false statements in february we don't get to say sorry we made a mistake and withdraw them eight months later you would be facing criminal sanctions. the reality is the documents are necessary to find out what was going on and if there is a cover up here why, now you do have the chief of staff for the department of justice has resigned as of friday of this week. he gave his notice in, and as congressman darrell issa said that was long over do. i concur with the congressman. this is the beginning

region on the brink of war? >> it is boiling. what we're witnessing right now is a series of civil wars. one is completely open in syria. as you mentioned there is the issue of chemical weapons. we could talk about that quickly. in libya the militia attacked us in benghazi. you have the unsettled situation in yemen. iran which is building its own weapons system and missile and penetrating iraq. in syria i may say the issue of chemical weapons is the most serious. yes, the regime is moving weapons away from the forces of the rebels but you don't know at what time the regime may use them. you don't know when al qaeda penetrating the rebels may seize some of these rebels. it is a very tense situation in syria. melissa: just so frightening. walid phares. thanks so much for joining us. >> thank you for having me. lori: rising tensions in the middle east, oil under pressure today. fox business contributor phil flynn of price futures group following all the action from the pits of the cme. why is not oil reacting more to the news out of egypt and for that matter syria, too? >> because the mark

is an escalation in the streets but is it across broader cairo society? there have been calls for civil disobedience and we see evidence of that with some newspapers not publishing and radio stations not broadcasting tomorrow but you do not see it broadly across egypt. this is substantial. it looks for right now as your reporter pointed out, it look like the referendum is going through. >>shepard: do you get the sense that president morsi will retreat? >>guest: the reporting suggests he is moving ahead and he feels he has enough support in the muslim brotherhood and he has, now, a draft constitution, and that enough judges will be there to sanctify this referendum and they can codify the gains the muslim brotherhood made. the opposition is concerned that they had their first election and their last election and there will be a consolidation by the muslim brotherhood it will impede liberty. >>shepard: the reading of the constitution suggests that they are -- their democracy will only last a few days but this is a new dictatorship from the constitution. >>guest: there are limitations on f

decision and new job. and syria's civil war is in a very dangerous perhaps decisive tipping point right now. can the world prevent bashar al assad from using chemical weapons against his own people? i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> we begin with president obama taking his battle to extend tax cuts for the middle class into the heart of the middle class suburb today. he visited a family just outside washington, d.c., using their story to dramatize what will happen in just 26 days if he and congress can't make a deal on the so-called fiscal cliff. a source of great concern for so many people, everyone's taxes will go up, will go up if there's no deal. let's go live to our white house correspondent dan lothian. he's on the scene for us over at the white house. how did it go, dan? >> reporter: well, wolf, we've seen the president do this before in the past whenever he's locked in negotiations with lawmakers. he heads out on the road, either goes to a backyard or sits down around a dinner table to put pressure on congress. that's what he did today when he went to falls churc
constitution. the fact is that our constitution has been amended 17 times and always to expand rights and never to narrow them except prohibition that got repealed. what's the truth is that this is an issue that has taken hold. it's about civil marriage licenses. there's just been too many people that have now come out and, you know, thousands and millions of individual acts where the american public something the strategists did not anticipate back in 1996 is the american public shifts and as it has become comfortable, they have determined yes, these licenses should be extended. you know, the u.s. supreme court could determine this on narrower grounds, just on the california issue and just strike down doma. then we are left with nine states where you can marry and it would remain unresolved as to the other states. seasoning correct. >> if we are ever going to see civil marriage in alabama, it has to be the u.s. supreme court. i think we are living in an amazing era for gay people. hopefully the supreme court will understand its moment in history and like it has done before, come down on the si
